Operation Christmas Child – Time to pack your shoeboxes! Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies and deliver them to children in need around the world, as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Collection week for shoeboxes is November 18-25, 2019. LMCPC is a drop off location for Adams County. We will receive boxes from surrounding area churches in the Fellowship Hall on the following dates and times: November 18, 3-5pm, November 19, 12-2pm, November 20, 11am-1 pm, November 21, 5-7pm, November 22, 11am-1 pm, November 23, 10 am-12 pm, November 24, 12:30-2:30pm and 4-6pm, November 25, 7-9 am.  If you would be willing to volunteer at one of these times to greet people dropping off boxes, and do a little accounting (very simple), please email Elaine at jereichl@comcast.net. I am out of town but will get back to you on Nov. 1st to verify your available dates.

OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS 


Fitness Program - "FUNnFITNESS"

The Fitness Program lead by Dave Diehl is Thusday's at 1:00 PM.  

​​


This fall the room 4 adult group 
will look at the life of the apostle Peter. Peter was an ordinary person who heard an extraordinary call. He was not rich or educated, but was familiar with hard work. He was quick-tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with doubt and fear. Join us Sunday mornings at 9:45 as we discuss the book Simon Peter by Adam Hamilton. There is no charge for the book. Questions: Susan Nunamaker and Doyle Waybright



Wednesday Afternoon Bible Study and Prayer Meeting

The Wednesday 1:30 PM Bible Study has begun a book by N. Graham Standish called "Paradoxes For Living".  To be strong, we have to be weak. To become mature, we have to become children. To live, we have to die are some of the challenges we are exploring. Standish suggests that taking time to delve into these oft-overlooked passages will help faith grow and give a deeper understanding of and closer relationship with God. Please feel free to join us.
